I don't like the idea of having someone else making the choices for me. Too much power on very few people lead to malicious activities from them, especially silencing whoever disagrees with what they do, in order to protect their power. If we can find a way to manage ourselves independently and still naturally create consensus within the community, I'm all for it.

I've seen that people have what's needed to make this possible. Good examples are the Free Software Movement, the groups of mutual aid and the people practicing DIY in their lives (do-it-yourself); it makes me motivated.

Also, talk is cheap. I wouldn't trust companies and governments because all they do is give us talk, but are not transparent, not "open source". Whatever transparency they try to show once and a while is heavily filtered to avoid leaking what could damage their precious public opinion. They would kill you, if they found it profitable.
